Compared to the rest of the Focus family, the Active models have an enhanced exterior look, with crossover-like styling cues. Plastic cladding, different bumpers and grille, roof rails, skid plates, new alloy wheel choices and jacked-up suspension set them apart.

Inside, users will find Active scuff plates, high-bolstered seats with Active cloth trim and blue stitching, special floor mats, leather-wrapped steering wheel and gear selector, and other tweaks. Ford’s SYNC3 infotainment system is present, with an 8-inch touchscreen display, voice control, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. The FordPass Connect 4G Wi-Fi hotspot will be available for a monthly fee.

Changes also go beyond the visual spectrum, as the 2019 Ford Focus Active gets a modified chassis and two additional driving modes. Joining Normal, Sport and Eco, they are called Slippery and Trail, and help improve the car’s traction on snow, ice, sand and mud.

    Dammit Ford, it’s a nice looking car. I wish they’d re-think their decision not to bring it to the US and bring it here.
